PROTESTANT ORPHANS' HOME. 

Premier Whitney occupied the chair at the 55th Annual 
Meeting of the Board of Managers of the Protestant Orphans' 
Home, and spoke in glowing terms of the good work of the 
institution in protecting and training children who were 
friendless and alone in the world. He also noted the healthy 
condition of the children, who occupied several tiers of seats 
in the assembly hall, and stated that it was a source of de- 
light to him to be present aiid notice the evidences of success 
in caring for them. Mrs. Whitney was also present at the 
meeting-. 

The reports presented show that the management of the 
institution during the past year has been very successful and 
an active interest has been taken by those who are associated 
with the work. The financial standing of the institution is 
also quite satisfactory. 

Mrs. J. S. McMurray, second directress, read the report of 
the Board of Managers, which showed the average number 
of children each month was 152 and of inmates 162. Since 
last June 91 children have been admitted, 57 boys and .34 
girls. Of these 40 were born in Toronto, 23 in other Canadian 
towns, 21 in Great Britain, 5 in the United States, and two 
in Egypt, near Cairo. By religion 51 were Church of England, 
17 Presbyterian, 15 Methodist, 4 Baptist, 1 Congregationalism 
and 3 Jews. There were 60 who left the home, nearly all of 
whom were taken by a surviving parent or relatives. One 
boy was apprenticed, one girl adopted, one boy absconded and 
went to an elder brother, one little girl died, and two were 
removed to the Weston Hospital for Consumptives. The 
conduct of the children was reported good, and the manage- 
ment of the officials highly commended. This report is the 
last one that will be written by Miss Langton, as she lias re- 
signed the position of secretary owing to inability to attend 
the board meetings regularly. 

The financial report, presented by Mrs. L. E. Cowan, 
treasurer, showed a balance on hand of $344.20 with a total 
expenditure of $9,530.66. The report was for the year 
ending May 31st, 1906. Mr. J. J. Kelso moved the adoption 
of the two reports. 



11 



Dr. MeConnell, home physician, reported only two deaths 
during the year, two cases of diphtheria and a mild outbreak 
of measles and whooping cough. The home, he said, was in 
a healthy condition. 

A few brief remarks were made in moving the adoption 
of the reports by Rev. Canon Cayley and Rev. Mr. Skey, and 
the latter advanced a suggestion which may be adopted by 
the managers. He thought that a change should be made in 
the custom of sending girls out into the world at the age of 
12 and 14 years, and that instead they should be retained 
until the age of 18, when they develop a character and 
thoroughly realize the responsibility of womanhood. At 
such an early stage in life these girls too often become the 
victims of a friendless world and are unable to protect them- 
selves. Rev. Mr. Skey has made a study of the question 
and spoke from a knowledge of the work in institutions 
established for the rescue of women. 

The officers elected for the ensuing year are : Patron, 
Earl Grey ; Patronesses, Countess of Grey, Mrs. Morrow ; 
Honorary President, Mrs. John Cawthra ; 1st Directress, 
Mrs. Elmes Henderson, 243 Dovercourt Road ; 2nd Directress,

THE FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 

OF THE 

PROTESTANT ORPHANS' HOME 

TORONTO 

June 5th, 1906. 



The Lady Managers of the Protestant Orphans' Home 
are again privileged to offer to the public a satisfactory report 
of their work during the past year, and they desire to acknow- 
ledge thankfully the merciful Providence of their Heavenly 
Father, who is the Giver of all o-ood things. 

The fifty-fifth annual report presents but little in the 
way of novelty. Good health and good conduct have, as a 
rule, prevailed amongst the children, and although we have 
had visitations both of measles and of whooping cough, 
neither were of a severe character, and many children escaped 
infection. This immunity is largely due to the vigilance of 
the matron, who is careful to isolate cases of illness at an early 
stage, as far as possible. But the want of an infirmary where 
sick children can be effectually isolated is increasingly felt. 
This necessary adjunct to the Home has engaged the attention 
of the Board of Managers for some time past, and some pre- 
liminary steps have been taken towards obtaining it, either 
by an additional structure, or by the adoption of a portion of 
the existing building to the purpose. It is hoped that 
another }ear will not pass without seeing this need supplied. 

The number of children who have been inmates of the 
Home during the past twelve months shows a perceptible in- 
crease over the previous year. Since last June 91 children 
have been admitted, 57 boys and 34 girls. Of these 40 were 
born in Toronto, 23 in other Canadian towns, 21 in Great 
Britain, 5 in the United States, and 2 in Egypt, near Cairo. 
By religion 51 are Church of England, 17 Presbyterian, 15 
Methodist, 4 Baptist, 1 Congregationalist, and 3 Jews. 05 



13 



children left the Home. 59 of them, nearly all, were taken 
by a surviving parent, or by relatives. One boy was ap- 
prenticed, one girl was adopted, one boy absconded and went 
to an elder brother, one little girl died, and two children were 
removed to the Weston Hospital for Consumption. One of 
these, a good gentle girl, who had been for some years in the 
Home, was of delicate constitution, and she developed rapid 
consumption after whooping-cough. Everything possible was 
done for her, but without avail. She died about a month 
after her admission to the hospital. The average number of 
children in the Home per month was 152, and of inmates 162. 

When our children attain the age of 12 years, the rule 
is that, if not removed by relatives, they must be placed in 
situations. Very few are now left for us to provide for in 
this manner ; only one boy having been apprenticed this year, 
and of those who have been placed out in former years not 
more than a dozen remain whose term of service is still in- 
complete. From the employers of these children we receive 
yearly reports of their health and conduct, mainly satisfact- 
ory. And sometimes when a boy's term is up, and he writes 
to ask for his wages from the Savings Bank, we receive such 
a gratifying letter as the following from George G. : "I am 
" pleased to find that you and the Lady Managers are satis- 
" tied with me prolonging my time with Mr. W. I will admit 
" I am getting big wages for a starter, and I intend to earn 
" them. As to my five year's earnings, I think I had better 
" leave them in safe-keeping, drawing interest, until I can 
" add more to it. I am thankful for the interest you and the 
" Lady Managers took in me, as no guardian could have taken 
" more pains, no parents could have done better than the 
" Home done for me, which certainly does deserve credit. 
" Now I will close my short letter, thanking you and the 
" Home Managers for their kindness, wishing you and all a 
" happy future." 

From the master of another lad who has lately com- 
pleted his apprenticeship we received the following letter : 
" Enclosed find my last payment for Peter. He has gone to 
" live with Mr. T. M., one of our neighbours. They have two 
" small children, so I think it will be a nice place for him. 
" He is to get $125 for a year. When he left he had a good 
" suit of clothes, a good overcoat, grey lamb cap, two sets of 



14 



" underwear, two every day shirts, one Sunday shirt, three 
" every day pants, four pair of stockings, two pair of mitts, 
" three pairs of hoots, and a pair ofc rubbers aud moccasins." 
A list of all our apprenticed children is sent each year to the 
Government Superintendent of Dependent Children, and they 
are visited by the Government visitor whenever possible, and 
reports of the visits are forwarded to the Home. The fol- 
lowing is the latest received : — 

" Report of visit to S. C., a ward of the Protestant 
"Orphans' Home. Placed with Mrs. O. This is a line home. 
"A comfortable, large brick house, beautiful evergreens about 
" it, and a splendid farm in every respect. The girl has been 
" there six years and her sister resides about a mile away. 
" S. is spoken of as being honest, truthful and obedient, was 
" comfortably dressed. Can sew nicely, and showed a very 
" pretty hem-stitched handkerchief which she had just fin- 
" ished. Can knit well, and was busy footing a pair of stock- 
" ings. She has a good education, likes her home very much, 
" and it is to be hoped she may long remain in it." 

The Lady Managers have as usual many kind gifts to 
acknowledge from friends of the Home. Donations in money, 
or in eatables, or toys, are always sent at Christmas, and are 
acknowledged in the daily papers. Mrs. Carlyle's ice-cream 
treat in the summer was gratefully appreciated. Other kind 
friends send gifts of fruit at various times. And the 
Orphans' Home cart, when it makes its rounds, is always the 
recipient of bountiful supplies of buns, cakes, apples, etc., from 
the bakers, fruiterers and orocers in the neighborhood. 
These form a valuable addition to the childreu's tea, giving 
them the pleasure of variety. The young daughters of Mrs. 
E. Y. Eaton organized a private bazaar among their own 
friends last summer, and realized the handsome sum of §71.00. 
The intention was to provide treats and outings for the child- 
ren during the holidays. And about one-third of the money 
was thus employed, giving them three outings to the Island 
and to the parks, and an ice cream treat. The remainder 
was spent upon new winter hats, which were nearly as great 
a pleasure. 

Mr. and Mrs. W. N. West of Wellesley Street, very kindly 
presented a gramophone to the Home. Its utterances are 
a great amusement to the children, and a resource on wet

days. Mrs. Heintzman gave a musical entertainment in the 
Home in February. She was assisted by friends, and a very 
pleasant evening was enjoyed. Mr. Kirkpatrick and Mr. 
Armstrong brought a gramophone to amuse the children in 
March, and the pupils of Givens Street School performed a 
cantata. 

One important addition made to the Home during the 
year has been that of fire escapes, according to the city regu- 
lations. They were placed in position during the month of 
October, and we earnestly hope they will never be used. 
The exterior of the Home was repainted last summer, and it 
is the constant endeavour of the Managers to keep the pro- 
perty in good repair. 

In conclusion, the Lacly Managers desire to tender their 
hearty thanks to all those gentlemen who have assisted them 
in professional and business matters, to the consulting phy- 
sicians, as well as to Dr. McConnell and Dr. Hunter, the at- 
tending physicians ; to Mr. Huson Murray, their solicitor, and 
to Mr. Elmes Henderson and Mr. R. B. Street, who always 
give kind help in business matters. 

The day school, which is situated in the grounds of the 
Institution, is regularly attended by all the children of school 
acre, and Mr. Lewis and a band of faithful teachers give 
religious instruction on Sundays. 

Miss Deacon, the Matron, continues to carry on the 
domestic management of the Home with commendable zeal 
and success, under many difficulties, and enjoys the full con- 
fidence of the Lady Managers. Sergeant Hind, who has 
•been in charge of the older boys for nine years, is also highly 
esteemed by the Managers. He is most faithful in discharge 
of his duties, and regards the interests of the Home as his own. 

Mrs. Farley, who has been for many years a member of 
the Board, was compelled to resign this year on account of 
her health. She is succeeded by Mrs. Scholfield. 

The Secretary regrets that this is the last report she 
will have the pleasure of writing. But her frequent absences 
necessitate her resignation of an office which demands a 
regular attendance at the Board meetings. 

E. Langton, 

Secretary.

FIFTY-FIFTH MEDICAL REPORT. 



The Fifty-Fifth Annual Medical Report is, we think, as 
most of its predecessors quite encouraging. We have to re- 
port two deaths — one from meningitis and one from tuber- 
culosis — two diseases, which considering the number of little 
ones in our Home, we cannot always hope to escape. There 
was a mild outbreak of measles with no bad results, however. 
From the more dangerous contagious diseases, we have been 
almost free, for, excepting two cases of diptheria, the child- 
ren have escaped splendidly. 

But as we always feel under such excellent care, as that 
given by Miss Deacon and her staff, added to the able super- 
vision of the Lady Managers, the children in this Orphans' 
Home cannot help but enjoy, on the whole, excellent health. 

J. H. McConxell, M.D., 

A ttending Physician.
